Featured Artist — February 2018
Melody Biore is our featured artist this month. Stop by the tasting room to meet Melody on Sunday, February 11th from 2 to 5 pm with complimentary appetizers. Enjoy LIVE music featuring Mike Dunn & Holly Gleason from 3 to 5 pm.
Melody Blore leads quite a quirky and colorful not-so-still-life. She and her husband, Darrell, retired to Jacksonville, Oregon from Southern California in 2010. On a whim four months later, she opened A French BouTEAque. What began as a Parisian-style tea room (salon de the) soon evolved into a shop for those with a ‘Tea Party Spirit’. It claimed to be “a creative cottage full of imagination and magical experiences…imagined and created by a Fancy Nancy / funky Martha Stewart kinda gal”. When she closed, customers asked, “What will you do now?” She said she would paint. And she did! Her whimsical works reflect all her boutique had embodied — a spirit of celebration! Melody paints in acrylic with a happy color palette. She’s been painting for the past five years but has been an artist since childhood.
At her Newport Beach, California flower shop, Melody’s Garden, customers often declared that she ‘painted with flowers’. Now, she paints them on canvas!
Melody’s experiences as an interior decorator, graphic artist, florist, party stylist and tea room owner are often the subjects of her paintings. Oh, and she’s a serious Francophile, which is often evident!
Melody Blore has an upstairs studio at the Ashland Art Center, downtown Ashland. It’s also a spot to create and to hold private and group workshops.
The Rogue Powerpack Program
Brought to you by the Junior League of Jackson County, the Rogue Powerpack Program provides backpacks filled with nutritious, child-friendly food to selected elementary school children who are receiving free breakfast or lunch at school during the week, but are lacking adequate food at home over the weekend. Backpacks are filled every Friday to ensure they do not go hungry while away from school. Each backpack includes six meals and two snacks with additional meals added on Holiday weekends. Backpacks are returned and reused weekly.
Just $10 provides a hungry child a backpack filled with breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack for each day of the weekend. $250 will sponsor a child for a full year of the Rogue Powerpack Program. Visit the tasting room to make a donation.

Greetings and Felicitations Roxyites!
Time for another (famed in song and story!) WINEMAKERS CORNER!!
Hopefully, all of you survived the arduous Holiday Season and are doing well. I guess if you didn’t survive you wouldn’t be reading this!
While things are slightly slower (and considerably colder) in the Winery (and Vineyard) things are still moving along. We have finished putting the 2017 vintage wines down into barrels and now we are taking the 2015 individual bottlings of red varietals out and getting them ready for bottling in February. At the same time, we are looking to finish the 2017 Pinot Gris (aka Medford water!), Viognier, and Sauvignon Blanc to bottle as well. Out in the Vineyard the vines are sleeping peacefully waiting for the sun, and warmer temps, to return so they can raise their leaves to the sky and do their ‘Salutations to the Sun’ yet again. Yeah, OK, I wax poetic, but it’s all I’ve got!!
Over at the Tasting Room, we are looking to add a new exterior covering to replace the tents. Do the Happy Dance, Raise the Roof, etc (all the things you hope to NEVER see me do!). This will mean we will not have to put up nor take down the tents EVER AGAIN!!!! YEA!!
So if you see the winemaking staff in the tasting room some afternoon or around the property we “should” all be in good spirits. Until the Bottling truck shows up that is.
So remember RoxyAnn wines are like Doritos…drink all you want and we’ll make more!
From deep in the Winery Bunker,
Your Friendly Local Winemaker Kent Barthman

RoxyAnn Vintage Wine Discovery
Whenever I shop, I always visit the wine section. This past weekend I stopped in the Ruch Market. To my surprise there were a selection of 2010 Sky Hill Red and 2011 Syrah. We are currently sold out of those two vintages in the tasting room. So, the next time you are en route to the Applegate stop by the Ruch Market and visit the wine section.
The Cottage at Hillcrest Orchard
This historic little cottage boasts an incredible location for wine tasting and gorgeous views. Located on the grounds of the 250 acre Hillcrest Orchard Estate and RoxyAnn Winery, The Cottage will not disappoint for your next getaway!
Enjoy a complimentary wine tasting or glass of wine at the RoxyAnn Tasting Room.
“This place is a rare find for all the right reasons! Easily one of the coolest Airbnbs that I’ve stayed at. I arrived on a Friday night just in time for the live band and food truck by the tasting room. Barbara provided all the information and made sure everything was taken care of during my short stay. Make sure you get there early to taste some wine (the Malbec was my favorite). The staff are super friendly and the room is filled with witty wine quotes. Will definitely stay here again next time! PS. do NOT leave this place without getting a few bottles of wine =).”
“Terry and Barbara’s cottage was great! We went after harvest and the grounds are still beautiful. The staff in the tasting room was super friendly and even helped explain some of the wines to novice drinkers. We will definitely book this place again for our next journey through the area. Tastefully remodeled and comfortable all around!”
Southern Oregon — WineEnthusiast’s Top 10 Travel Destinations

By the way, if you are wondering who is toasting a glass of bubbles in the “Where to Dine” section, it is our very own Steven Addington. It was an incredible evening of amazing food and wine spent with Eric & Julie Weisinger and friends at The Loft in downtown Ashland.
